St Peter’s Preparatory School is set in 28 acres of beautiful countryside with stunning views over the Exe Estuary. A traditional, yet progressive prep school for children aged 3 up to 13. In the extensive grounds of our school, we have:
- 2 adventure playgrounds
- a swimming pool
- astro for hockey, tennis and netball
- 4 rugby pitches

St Peter’s pupils benefit from outstanding teaching in small class sizes where children of all abilities have the individual attention they need to enable outstanding achievement and challenge.
Year 8 children gain 100% success rate of entry to their chosen senior schools and many leave us with academic scholarships or with scholarships in art, music, sport or drama. Your children can also learn to horse ride, sail, kayak or ringo on the Estuary as part of our Friday afternoon activity programme. Nursery children enjoy both our own forest school and beach school.
Last ISI Integrated Inspection report says:
“Pupils achieve exceptionally well from Early Years Foundation Stage onwards, both in their academic work and their extra-curricular activities.”
The Good Schools Guide states:
“Exceptionally strong sports record maintained over long period with more than a handful making at least county level representative teams.”
